I dont think many of these shows are on regular cable...
    That's going to be a lot tougher. Where do you live? Because certain cities get the Anime Network, which shows A LOT of anime (check out their website--theanimenetwork.com) If you live in one of the cities that gets this, and you have cable or satellite, then all you have to do is call to add it to your programming. It might cost extra, but when you see all the shows they offer, it's worth it. You can also try renting, but not a lot of places have a great selection.

    Yeah, definetly try to stay away from downloading :Thumbd: . i know that it's convienent for a lot of people, but if it continues, I think that a lot of studios will stop bringing so much anime over here, because it won't be worth importing a series if they can't make any money bacause everyone will download it illegally.

I guess I like BG because it was a little more realistic and it reminded me a little of Resident Evil (I'm a big RE fan). so based on this, does anyone have any manga recommendations for me? I would like to read some and learn a little more about it.
    Haha, yes! A noob that doesn't like Inu Yasha or DBZ! Lemme just take this in... -breathes- Ahhh... I live for moments like this...

    Anyways, manga recommendations? Well, as a starter, I'd go read Love Hina and Chobits. See which one you like.

    I don't think subscribing to the Anime network will be an option for me, so I guess I'll mostly stay with the manga. So I bought the first volumes of Akira and Love Hina based on suggestions. Akira seems awesome from what I've read, and I thought Love Hina was OK, but none of the characters were too interesting.

    Well, reading is better for you anyway . So I'll suggest the Trigun manga, and if you like it, then you can invest in the DVD; Pioneer has them on their Signature Series, so each dvd is only 17 or 18 dollars..that's way better than when I bought them for 26 bucks each!
